A visit to the Melbourne Writers Festival

On Saturday, Patrick and Tom L took their friends Martin B and Marcus C to the Melbourne Writers Festival. They did WordPlay@ArtPlay . The boys went to an Illustrating workshop with one of our favourite illustrators Leigh Hobbs and a Writing workshop with Doug Macleod.

Marcus and I went to ArtPlay at Federation Square as part of the Melbourne Writers Festival. We saw Leigh Hobbs and he taught us how to draw Old Tom and Mr Chicken.

Old Tom

We went to a Writing workshop and we had to make up our own character and give them a problem. We made a Captain Underpants book. The problem for Captain Underpants was that he had to defeat the big fat turkey.
